10 DESIGN has launched a new mixed-use development, the Sungang MixC Market Hall, in China. Currently under construction and scheduled for completion by 2022, the project, a retail, gastronomy and offices destination is located on a former industrial zone.
Part of the regeneration of the district, MixC Market Hall, will accommodate 78,890 square meters of retail and F&B dining space, with two office towers providing 102,320 square meters of workspace. The overall master plan will also include residential and serviced apartment towers, resettlement housing, and public amenities.
Drawing inspiration from a more traditional market square, the project creates a central meeting place for the public.
The site used to accommodate a warehouse within the old industrial district of Sungang and will soon be converted into a new CBD. The complex will mark an important milestone for the ongoing transformation of Sungang, acting as a catalyst to drive urban regeneration in the area.
The complex is imagined as a range of interconnected spaces, revolving around the human scale. MixC Market Hall will include food-oriented boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops, food halls, interactive classes, as well as arts, culture, and entertainment spaces.
In order to create a a new and dynamic boulevard, the façade holds a stainless steel sculptural canopy that leads to the pedestrianized retail street. The market hall entrance is animated by three floating box-shaped structures, inspired by the design of food truck containers.
